As the years go by, many have chosen a more appropriate way to bury their deceased loved one, however  Not everyone prefer their Love one being cremated, and not everyone wants to be buried in a coffin.

Capsula Mundi, a project from Italy, is the penultimate hippie solution for burial: an organic pod for the deceased that has a tree planted on top of it.

So instead of gravestones and crosses, a forest of trees would stand in a cemetery. The pods are made from starch and other organic, easily degradable materials.

The tree can be chosen before departure by the deceased.

In the end, it is hoped that cemeteries of this kind would be like parks and forests.

Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel  the key people working with this project seem to be very enthusiastic about this idea, going as far as calling them “sacred forests”.

The project is currently only a concept because Italian law forbids such burials.

 If it were allowed to proceed, however, the project’s aim would be to create entire memorial parks full of trees instead of tombstones.

 And instead of destroying and burying wood for wooden coffins, we would, at the end of our lives, provide sustenance for new trees instead.

 Indeed, the idea that our loved ones and descendants could visit our tree, care for it, rest in its shade and even eat its fruit  is truly a comforting one.
